It's a whole chicken recipe but beer can chicken!!! We made 4 at once on the grill for Labor day, I tried it in the oven last week because it was too cold for me to go look at the grill. Such a freeze baby, I don't know why I live here.

Anyway epicurious has a good one with a really easy dry rub. MM I think I better go buy a chicken today!

The EASIEST I've found is to put chicken breasts, thighs or whatever, in heavy tin foil. Add lots of SPICEY Itallian dressing. Cook at the normal oven temps and times. It takes just a minute to prepare and is guaranteed to be tender, moist, and succulent every time. Even do it on the grill in its foil pack. Or...leave out the spicey Itallian and add a stick of butter and whatever veggies you want. Corn, carrots, mushrooms, etc. were my favorite.

Rice Crispy Chicken

my family and friends love this and so do I since i make this fairly often I buy a box of crispy rice cereal and grate a whole box of cereal in the blender and then store it in a zip bag in the freezer to have on hand.

chicken breasts..skinless I use the split breats with bones (can use boneless)
1 stick of butter
crushed rice crispies

melt butter in a bowl or pan a little bigger than a piece of chicken..let it cool a little. Then put a piece of chicken in the melted butter to coat then roll in crushed rice crispies and put in 9x13 baking dish. After you have coated all the chicken you can drizzle any remaining butter over it and sprinkle more of the coating over it if you want. Bake at 350 for 45 mins to an hour..or till done.

I usually brine chicken in salt water a few hours before cooking it. You can add salt to the butter if you like. I have added garlic power to the butter sometimes too.

This recipe came from a friend of a friend of friend -- you know how that works.

Salsa Chicken

In a Crockpot
Place chicken breasts (4-6) in the bottom of the crock pot. Then mix 1 can black beans, 1 jar of salsa, 1 can of corn and 1 taco seasoning packet in large bowl. Pour over chicken and let the crockpot go.
HIGH- 3-4 HRS.
One hour before serving -mix in 1 cup of brown rice. or white.
Note :
I always serve the rice on the side instead. I have avacodos, shredded cheese, sour cream for topping.
If you have any leftovers. shredd the chicken add some of the beans corn and rice heat it up ,and then wrap it up in a tortilla . great for lunch the next day.
some times I add 1/2 cup of sour cream to the crockpot when it done.
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching

Pantry Chicken

Chicken, I used Leg Quarters (great sale on them)

Cut up tomatoes (skin them if you want)
Canned Diced Tomatoes
Canned Crushed Tomatoes
Tomato Paste

Garlic, peeled and smashed

Oregano, Fresh or Dried

Peppers, fresh or frozen, or don't use at all, I don't always have peppers on hand. Also, and I haven't thrown in any yet, but it probably won't hurt to put in some hot pepper too

Onions, fresh or frozen

Basically, what happened is that I wanted to use up some of the canned product, and I wanted to cook chicken. So I threw what I had in the pantry, in the pot, looked at it and said, yea, that's the consistency I want. I washed the chicken and threw it in the pot of tomatoes, put in the spices I wanted to use and put the cover on and let it cook for an hour or an hour in a half.

I wanted to clean out the pantry and replenish. In other words, wanted to use stuff up before it expired. Sales are great, but not worth it if you don't use the product up before it expires.

Now I made a boo boo when I made this recipe. The first boo boo was that I didn't write what I threw in there. Two, I never measure. Third mistake was feeding it to my husband. He claimed it tasted like his Dad's Caccitore recipe and now he wants this all the time. I did my best to remember exactly what I threw in there. But he's liked whatever I thought I put in there, as long as it's a tomato product, canned or fresh, he's loving it. Fresh tomatoes are starting to fade out, so I'm gonna have to figure on keeping canned in the pantry, LOTS of canned tomato products cuz I can see him bugging me for this on a cold winter day. :-)

It sort of winds up like a spaghetti sauce, so I served it over spaghetti.

In order to change the world, one must first start with one's self.

letscook that sounds really good! My last boneless breasts in the crockpot got really dry though, probably just cooked too long. Do they turn out ok at high temp?

Perfect "fried" chicken every time. This method, though not the only way to make perfectly juicy chicken, was taught to me by my MOL, a wonderful lady, and it hasn't failed me in 30 years of making meals. The chicken comes out perfect every time, so tender, and so juicy that it will squirt you in the first bite, so have napkins ready.

1 whole, cut up chicken
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbs. chicken soup base (optional)
1/8 cup milk
Cooking Oil to fill a frying pan to 3 inches deep

Preheat oven to 375' F.
Preheat the oil in a heavy frying pan.

Beat the milk and eggs together in a shallow bowl to make egg-wash. Combine the flour, chicken soup base, and pepper in a large platic freezer bag. Dry the chicken with paper towels. Coat the chicken with the egg-wash by dipping and turning. Place the pieces, one at a time, into the bag and shake until coated. Shake off excess coating and repeat until all pieces are coated. place the chicken into the hot oil, taking care to not overcrowd the pan, and lightly brown all sides. Remove and place onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Put into the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Remove, lightly salt, and serve with your favorite side dishes.

Here's a killer cole-slaw to go with it.
1 head green or purple cabbage.
1 onion
3 carrots
1/2 cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing, or equivalent.
2 tbs. sugar, or Splenda
3/4 cup ice water

Shred the cabbage, carrots, and onion with a box grater, or food processor. Combine with the salad dressing and sweetener. Add ice water and stir. Taste. Correct the salad dressing, water ratio. This slaw whould be very juicy, with a bit of sweetness. It should almost quench you thirst when you eat it, with the full flavor of all ingredients combining in your mouth.
